Scott, SS benifits are not Earned Income and thus don't qualify for EITC.
I have heard nothing yet, that people with SS or SSI benifits will have to start filing, because you all either have Medical or Medicare.

Thank you Gary. Yes, I have one client, that has to file a Use Tax return. It get's paid, when we file his regular Tax return for California.
We also have a luxury tax for high ticket items. VAT or Value Added Tax, I believe it is called.

I get any VAT paid in Europe back, if I want to hassle with filling out the form at the Airport. So far I have not bothered to do so.


As to Amazone Prime, I did sign up for it once and it was for a six month trial. Then one day, I look at my checking account and saw a charge for something Amazon, but not the normal web addy. So first thing I thought, I got plished. Filled out a police report, took it to my bank a filed a claim to get the charge reversed. That evening, I see an e-mail from the offical Amazon site, saying thank you for renewing Amazon Prime, but I had 72 to cancel.
So of course I did that and shortly afterwards they refunded me the money. I never withdrew the police report, but I did notify my bank.

I don't order enough online to bother with it again. I will have to look at my Lappie receipt to see if I may owe a few bucks to CA for that.
Thank for the reminder.

Ich habe ihn mal in Hamburg gesehen.

Sorry Genglish

Was saved by my Cousin pushing his stroller, or I would have run across traffic to say HI. A bit later I met one of his friends.

Somewhere I got a pic or two.

ET seems to be trying to phone home, but the user may have suspended the tasks/project and thus they didn't get completed.
Others know more about that.
Richard can you provide a clue, if my thinking is right along those lines.

I am just a chicky that likes Boats, Trains and old cars.
Could dredging have something to do with this? We got quite a bit of flotsome from... well our Neighbors on the East side of the Pacific.
Just saying.
On the other hand, we are so good at... buildling and at... well getting little big things shipped out of our small channel. Parts of some Bridges in the Bay Area. All I know, our parts were built per specs.
Anyway, so far nothing has fallen down in SF and Eric/Ang home area, nor any Berkeley students have shown up at my doorstep.

That is a great day in Stockton. Not that I have ever seem any Protesters from Berkeley in Stockton.

I know a bit about container sizes, brigde heights in different countries, driving hours etc pp. No one here is an expert on all of it.

Trying to jugggle all the regulations is just insane. Just be the best at where you are at and have friends/etc pp help you out for this global mess and yes this mess might be someday sorted.

Thank you Julie, as we both speak B/Genlish.

I should be honest. At one point in my life, I was able to communicate in German, English, French and Dutch.
Now I am laging on the last two.

Scott, I haggle with AT and T every March and get the lowest advertised rate for my internet. I feel, I pay a bit much for my landline, but I have to have for friends and relatives to stay in touch.
Plus I had the same number for almost 35 years.
As to cable, we do nicely without it.

So true Ian.

With regards to hugs. I always get permission first, except when it comes to Julie.

Vic Ants need to eat too and so do the Moths. I am with Ian. If you still have it put it outside, why do you need a bowl anyway?

My three cats well four or more during the summertime have never complained about their food being stale. I go thru a 13.5 lb bag every two month.
The only time they get canned food is at night, which they have to share.

LOL
@ Julie. No one regardless of IQ, has control when a nervous break down happens.

As to ET, I am with most of you, I think our search is to refined, none the less, I will continue to crunch, as you just never know.

Ja, PlattDeutsch. A language on its own. If you understand it you should be well versed in German, English and Dutch.

Throw in a bit of Danish too.

Anyway, thanks to my Father and Oma, I at least understand it.

A long time ago, there was a thread dedicated to it.

Looking again at -3 C here again tonight. No rain in the forecast until next week.

But finally Cookietaster took care of the lawn.

We also now have the first Solar Panal installation in my neck of the woods.

Not cost effective for me yet, maybe someday.
